Quick Tip for using Perfect Pearls Powder

I love using my Perfect Pearls but I hate that I can never get all the powder off in the areas I don't want it. After getting frustrated using a tiny brush and still not getting it clean I grabbed my canned air that I use to clean my keyboard and used it on my cardstock. It took off the exxcess powder and left a beautiful clean stamped image covered with the perfect pearls (see post below for cards I did this with). Then I just spray with fixative spray and allow to dry!

Hope this helps:)

Lots of new cards to show you!!!!!!!!

In this first card I did something a little different. With my Cricut I cut out 2 images from the Indie Art cart and temporarily adhered them to my card. Then I used my versamark inkpad and went over the entire card front. I carefully peeled up my Cricut images - leaving only those spaces un-versamarked. I sprinkled Ranget Holographic embossing powder over the front of the card and heated. I love the effect I got!

With this card I enbossed my image with Judi-Kins Weathered Iron embossing powder then I went over the entire front with Ranger Distress Ink blending with a piece of foam. After I got a paint brush wet and flicked water over the image creating water spots.

Same method as above card using Ranger Moss embossing powder.

Just a simple birthday card. After I inked up my background stamp I spritzed it with a mix of water and perfect pearls so it has a slight sparkle - very subtle and pretty.

Love the way this card turned out!!!! I stamped my image with versamark and then used 2 different perfect pearls colors, afterwards setting it with fixative spray and allowing it time to dry. For the background stamp I used 2 different color inks and then spritzed it with the perfect pearls and water before stamping. In real life it's really sparkly!!!

I got this idea from a tutorial on Ranger Paint Daubbers. I stamped my background with a script stamp. Cut the leaves out from the Serenade cart with the Cricut and temporarily adhered it to my card. I them took a piece of foam and spread out the paint from the Daubber all over the card, peeled up my cut image and allowed lots of time to dry. I used Staz-on to stamp my sentiment on the Tim Holtz acrylic piece.

For this card I used my script background stamp in brown and went over it quickly with my heat gun to speed up the drying. I then used Tim Holtz Rock Candy Crackle Paint and allowed to dry on it's own. I used only a thin coat so the crackle is very subtle. Stamped my sentiment with Staz-on on the acrylic piece.

Quick birthday card. Background stamped with versamark and then went over with 3 different colors of perfect pearls and set with fixative spray.
Another quick birthday card. Background stamp spritzed with the perfect pearls and water for a little shine. Image colored quickly with Copic markers and then brused over Iridescent medium for a sparkle finish. Silver cord added too.
